In the mountains of Western Maine, less than 20 miles from the New Hampshire border, is a tiny community on the shores of the Androscoggin River. Although it boasts fewer than 400 residents, the tranquil town of Newry has gained an outsize reputation for its pristine rivers, beautiful foliage, and very own Sunday River Ski Resort. So pull on your boots or tune up your mountain bike - our Newry vacation rentals are a serene escape in every season.
Beautifully situated at the meeting of the Androscoggin, Bear, and Sunday Rivers, the small town of Newry is tucked away among the slopes and ridges of Western Maine. The town, which is home to the beloved Sunday River Ski Resort, sits seven miles north of Bethel's natural splendor, 28 miles east of the rugged peaks in White Mountain National Forest, and 71 miles north of historic downtown Portland.
Should you plan your visit to one of our Newry vacation homes in the peak of autumn, there are few more colorful times to admire the Sunday River Bridge. Known more commonly as Artist's Bridge, this covered span on the Sunday River was constructed in 1872 and was a perennial favorite of the American impressionist painter John Enneking.
Come winter, skiers and snowboarders flock to the slopes of Sunday River, where you'll find eight interconnected peaks, 135 trails and glades, six terrain parks, and an 18-foot superpipe across 870 acres. The resort even offers a "Snow Guarantee" and backs it up with state-of-the-art technology to source manmade snow from the Sunday River.
Newry is equally alluring in the sparkling summer months, whether you choose to kayak the Androscoggin River, ride 20 miles of trails at the Sunday River Bike Park, or practice your drive at the Sunday River Country Club. The snowy slopes of winter make way for summer zip lines, scenic lift rides, and the L.L. Bean Outdoor Discovery School.
Let yourself in on one of the last remaining secrets in Maine - you'll never forget the time you spend at our Newry vacation rentals!
